SCIENCE DOES NOT EXIST IN A VACUUM

As scientists, it's part of our job to make our science accessible. 

I think outreach should be encouraged and rewarded amongst scientists in the same way that we encourage and reward writing papers. And beyond that, outreach is just fun! I love talking to people of all ages about science, from 7-year-olds to retirees. I particularly enjoy talking to adults who are skilled in a field that isn't science. We have so much to learn from each other, and it's nice to get a different perspective once in a while

 

Below are some of the organizations I've worked with while in graduate school.
